But cough medicine may not be the best remedy, the agency warns.
The agency offers these guidelines:
- The FDA doesn’t recommend over-the-counter cough or cold medicines for children younger than age 2 years.
- Caregivers should carefully read labels on OTC cough and cold products, because some may contain codeine.
- Prescription cough medicines containing codeine or hydrocodone should not be given to children under 18 years old.
